Hi I'm Troy

I grew up all over the US. I spent 6 years in the military and loved it.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of 3 boys, young men now. I'm a firearms instructor and I also teach classes for concealed firearms permits. I'm a huge boxing fan and love to watch the sweet science in action. I started college in 1986 and only went a year and stopped, then in 2008 I started back and I'll graduate in December of 2012. This has been a wonderful experience and one that I wouldn't change for the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a Mormon. It was all I had ever known. As I grew older I decided that I wasn't going to just be a blind follower anymore; I would question everything. I would only accept things after I had vetted them myself-- to my satisfaction. I wish I could say that I had all the answers but the truth of the matter is, I don't. I also wish I were perfect but that is not going to happen. All I know is this; I'm much happier living as a Mormon than not.

How I live my faith

I'm a Sunday School and I teach the 12-13 year olds. I love teaching these kids, they are tons of fun. I have done all sorts of things in my church and have enjoyed them all. I also love having been able to work with my sons on different service projects in my community. I can tell you that nothing beats working side by side with your kids while they learn the lesson of service.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

I don't and neither does anyone in the church. Don't get me wrong, he is very important to us but we worship our Saviour Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
